March: ‘No work, no pay’ for Samwu

2012-10-26 00:00

MSUNDUZI Municipal Manager Mxolisi Nkosi has warned the South African Municipality Workers’ Union (Samwu) members that the “no work, no pay” principle would apply to those who take part in today’s protest.

Nkosi told the executive committee yesterday that Samwu had not followed the correct procedures when applying for the march, and that it had not been approved.

Samwu planned to march against the SA Local Government Association’s decision to appeal against a wage agreement settled on in June this year.

Nkosi said that no leave would be allowed and no municipal vehicles were to be used in the march.

Those who did not participate in the march would have to sign attendance registers.

“As per the law, we will be expecting essential services employees to report for work. All those involved in the strike action will undergo disciplinary action,” Nkosi said.

However, Samwu Msunduzi deputy chairperson Rocky Madondo said they had notified both Salga and the municipality of their intention to march.

“After the protest march, once the memorandum is handed to the relevant municipal officials, workers will return to work,” he said.
